Welcome Clara Marie Shinn!

Clara was born at 2:30 this morning, December 6. She weighed 7 pounds and 14 ounces, and measured 19.75 inches long. She’s got cute little jowls. 🙂 It was an extremely fast labor, with serious contractions starting at 12:45 am, and ending with Clara’s birth at 2:30 am! She latched on right away and started feeding well. She loves to suck on her hand, and there’s a little blister where she sucked on her hand in the womb. We look forward to getting to know this very welcome addition to our family! For anyone planning to visit my two girls in the hospital, visiting hours start around 10 or 11 am.

It’s interesting to note that Clara was delivered by Dr. Kroeker, whose father, Dr. Peters, delivered Liam.
